New York's Legal Landmarks: A Guide to Legal Edifices, Institutions, Lore, History, and Curiosities on the City's Streets
I thoroughly enjoyed Bob Pigott's wonderful book, although it did make me a bit concerned that when we sent him to court on the Attorney General's business, he was more focused on the facades of the courthouses than the substance of the cases!
-Eliot Spitzer, former New York Governor and New York Attorney General
New York's Legal Landmarks takes you on a tour of Gotham through the eyes of a history-loving New York City lawyer. You'll visit courthouses past and present that were sites of sensational trials (both actual and in film), locations that figured in the nation's constitutional history, law firms where great Americans practiced law and the homes, schools and final resting places of Supreme Court Justices. Whether you want to stroll down the Lower East Side's Attorney Street or re-open the cold case of Judge Crater's disappearance, New York's Legal Landmarks is the guidebook for you.
This volume is a joy for anyone even the least bit interested in New York's legal culture and landmarks. . . . The book belongs on your shelf and in your lap.
